Metallica rocks the American Airlines Center

E-mail Print PDF

Metallica played before almost 20,000 fans Tuesday night at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, performing the last of two shows in Texas as part of their “World Magnetic Tour.”

The evening was kicked off by the French band Gojira and Lamb of God from Virginia. They did their job warming up the crowd, but once the mighty Metallica hit the stage, the reaction and roar in the arena went to a whole other level.

The moment Metallica began to play, the guys set the pace for what was to be one of the best performances I have seen from this band. They gave nothing less than their very best for their loyal fans, and we loved every minute of it.

They included several songs from their latest  album “Death Magnetic,” balancing the new tunes with their classics.

Hearing two songs – “Cyanide” and “All Nightmare Long” – live for the first time just blew me away. Some of the best moments of the show were when the band cranked out classics like “One” and “Sad But True.”

Their live version of “Unforgiven” was the best I’ve ever heard.

Watching 20,000 fans pumping their fists in the air in synch with lead singer James Hetfield was an awesome sight to see. Another highlight was being up close for the first time (in the photographer’s pit) to see my favorite drummer, Lars Ulrich, tear up the skins.

All and all, this was one of the best live shows I’ve seen.

The band rocked American Airlines Center for more than two hours, and left thier fans wanting more as they headed for their next show in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., tonight.

If you’re a fan and have not seen them in concert, the next time Metallica plays Dallas, I recommend you get tickets. It really is the very best way to experience their music.

And I assure you, you will not be disappointed, as the band only seems to be getting better and better with age.
